Photosynthesis Play

Adenosine Triphosphate (ATP) A molecule that provides energy for cellular reactions and processes
Cellular Respiration A complex set of chemical reactions involving an energy transformation where potential chemical energy in the bonds of “food” molecules is released and partially captured in the bonds of adenosine triphosphate (ATP) molecules.
Chloroplast An organelle found in plant cells and the cells of other eukaryotic photosynthetic organisms where photosynthesis occurs.
Energy Transformation A process in which energy changes from one form to another form while some of the energy is lost to the environment.
Mitochondrion A membrane‐bound organelle found in most eukaryotic cells; site of cellular respiration.
Molecule The smallest particle of a substance that retains the chemical and physical properties of the substance and is composed of two or more atoms held together by chemical forces.
Organelle A subunit within a cell that has a specialized function.
Photosynthesis A process in which solar radiation is chemically captured by chlorophyll molecules and through a set of controlled chemical reactions resulting in the potential chemical energy in the bonds of carbohydrate molecules.
Plastids A group of membrane‐bound organelles commonly found in photosynthetic organisms and mainly responsible for the synthesis and storage of food
Producer An organism that uses a primary energy source to conduct photosynthesis or chemosynthesis.
Temperature A measure of the average kinetic energy (energy of motion) of particles in a sample of matter. This physical property can determine the rate and extent to which chemical reactions can occur within living systems.
glycolysis the splitting of sugar
chlorophyll green pigment in chloroplasts that capture the solar energy
stroma inner fluid in the chloroplasts
thylakoids Stacks of green "pancakes" in the chloroplasts
stomata openings in the leaves that allow for gas exchange
